Deposed Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II, has broken his silence after his dethronement by the Kano state government.
In a 4.39 minute video posted on social media, the Emir who spoke in Hausa, said it is God that made him the Emir of Kano state and it is God’swill that he is no more the Emir of Kano.
In his message, Sanusi accepted his dethronement as an act of destiny. He said: “With almost six years on this throne and (in charge of) our heritage. Today, the Almighty Allah, who gave me the leadership has destined to take it back.
“As I always say, leadership has predetermined tenure, the days Allah destined are numbered. When the days come to an end one must leave.
“We have accepted whatever Allah decides. We have agreed. We appreciate (God). We are happy and we know it is what is best for us.”
The video appeared to have been recorded at the Kano Palace on Monday, March 9, before Sanusi went into exile.
